|established. You know of the so-called Federal Reserve (and their bastard siblings established throughout the whole of the civilized world, such as The Bank of England and The Bank of France), The International Monetary Fund, The World Bank, and maybe you are even aware of The Bank of International Settlements, in Switzerland—which is the granddaddy of all private banks. Then there is the United Nations, the ultimate front for international banking interests. As this series of articles unfolds, we shall examine these institutions in greater detail. The world is corrupt beyond your wildest dreams my fellow Americans—and we, perhaps, are the most gullible of all nations. Our great ingenuity, diversity, energy, resources, and strength are being fully exploited—and not to the benefit of the average citizen by any stretch of the imagination.
For now, grasp this: The world you believe exists does not exist. We live in a form of “The Matrix,” not unlike the world portrayed in John Carpenter’s movie “They Live,” except high government officials and international bankers are the elite who control all you see and hear as did the aliens portrayed in the movie. The news is a farce. As is the case with the financial institutions which are concentrated in the hands of the few, long ago the media was bought and paid for, and in America this process was greatly reinforced with the 1996 Telecommunications Act. What you read and what you see on a daily basis is largely manufactured. You are being lied to, each and every day. If you find this acceptable; by all means, please continue to accept at face value what you see on TV and read in newspapers and magazines. If you do not find this acceptable, perhaps you need to consider alternative forms of information gathering in order to accurately assess your current and future environment, if for no other reason, than the safety of yourself and/or your family.
Consider this: There was a man by the name of John Swinton who worked for the New York Times. He was greatly admired and known as "The Dean of His Profession" by other newspapermen. The year was 1953 and in front of the New York National Press Club, he offered the following observation: “There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell the country for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press. We are the tools and vassals of the rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”
Gee, who would have thought? Next time you watch Bill O’Reilly or Peter Jennings on TV or listen to a so-called “conservative,” such as Rush Limbaugh, simply imagine them as they are, to wit, dressed in the garb and situated in such a manner truly most befitting them: Leaning against a lamp post on a dark corner, in an unsavory part of town, wearing tight, short skirts, garter belts, shameless amounts of make-up, smoking cheap cigarettes, and blatantly hawking their information “wares.” For you to associate with these men is for you to associate with the paid harlots of the international bankers who completely control the media in America. I do not know about you, but I have no intention of being a “John” of the international banker and their cadre. Spending time with these folks is no different than making poor choices in determining with whom you might associate with in real life—maybe worse.
From the time of President George Washington, the fight for control of this nation’s money has not ceased. In fact, since the very beginning of America, almost every presidential election has been dominated by discussion of who will control our money supply...that is until, finally, the hideous, unconstitutional monster known as the Federal Reserve System was unleashed upon an unsuspecting nation in December of 1913 and control began to finally be exercised over the people and press. But long before 1913, the power of the international banker was felt. The wars we have fought. The principles for which we thought we fought. Nothing is or was as it seemed. Each and every war we have been involved in has had at its very root one thing in common: The international banker. Do you believe the American Revolution was about too much taxes? Only in part. Do you believe the Civil War was about slavery? Only in part.
In colonial America, Paul Revere and Ben Franklin played a large role in establishing Colonial Scrip. This was paper money, backed by nothing accept the faith of the people, accepted throughout each of the colonies and it proved immensely popular. The amount kept in circulation was closely tied to the population and the needs of the people and industry. In short, the colonies thrived! However, back in England, because this Colonial Scrip was interest-free (as should be any legitimate government money, unlike our present debt system) and the colonies were indeed prospering tremendously (unemployment was unheard of), there was a problem: Where was the financial benefit to The Crown (or more accurately, to The Bank of England)?
While traveling in England, Ben Franklin observed “There was abundance in the Colonies, and peace reigned on every border. It was difficult, even impossible, to find a happier and more prosperous nation on all the surface of the globe. Comfort prevailed in every home. The people, in general, kept the highest moral standards, and education was widely spread.” Franklin explained exactly why the Colonies were so prosperous when he noted “Why, that is simple! In the Colonies, we issue our own paper money. It's called ‘Colonial Scrip.’ We issue it to pay the government's approved expenses and charities. We make sure it's issued in proper proportion to make the goods pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In other words, we make sure there is always adequate money in circulation for the needs of the economy. In this manner, by creating ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay, to anyone. You see, a legitimate government can both spend and lend money into circulation, while banks can only lend significant amounts of their promissory bank notes, for they can neither give away nor spend but a tiny fraction of the money the people need. Thus, when your bankers here in England place money in circulation, there is always a debt principal to be returned and usury to be paid. The result is that you have always too little credit in circulation to give the workers full employment. You do not have too many workers, you have too little money in circulation, and that which circulates, all bears the endless burden of unpayable debt and usury.” I bet Ben made fast friends with the English bankers.
In Franklin’s own words, “The Colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been for the poverty created by the bad influence of the English Bankers on the Parliament, which has caused in the Colonies hatred of England and the Revolutionary War.” Franklin further added that “...the inability of the colonists to get the power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the prime reason for the Revolutionary War.”
In 1751, England passed the first laws restricting the use of Colonial Scrip, followed by even greater restrictions in 1754. Franklin reported that only one year after implementation of the prohibition on Colonial Scrip, the streets of the Colonies were filled with unemployed and beggars, just like those he had seen in England, because there was not enough money to pay for their goods and work. The English Banker's new laws had reduced the circulating medium by half. Still think we went to war simply over a tea tax and other issues as suggested in the history books taught year after year to our children? Or has the role of the international banker been carefully removed from history, the truth suppressed?
You see, The Bank of England (private institution, just as the Federal Reserve) was simply not benefiting from this Colonial Scrip. The rich men behind the scenes who loan money to governments had managed to create the ultimate monopoly on the ultimate commodity—money. This money-making monopoly was the privately owned Bank of England. Can you imagine if you, personally, had the ability to create all money at no cost other than the raw materials (paper and metal) and loan it to a government at face value, PLUS interest? What if you could create electronic entries of money nearly 10 times the amount of cash you had on hand and loan out this “money” you have created out of thin air? What a scam! Yet, that is precisely how the privately owned central banks of the world function. If we tried this, it would be called a “felony” and we would go to jail for a very, very long time. Yet the whole of history seems filled with the legal “felonies” of international bankers, an elite breed whose actions are above those of mere mortal men and not subject to the scrutiny of silly laws—laws made for average people.
Fast forward to President Abraham Lincoln. It was precisely because of Lincoln’s monetary policy that the international bankers backed French troops on the Mexican border and British troops on the Canadian border prior to the start of The Civil War. The south was made to suffer exorbitant tariffs on basic staple goods sold to the north via Europe and its primary export, cotton, was purposely being replaced by Egyptian cotton and other sources, driving prices to all-time lows. The international banker-backed nations were applying the classic divide and conquer strategies to America—and of course financing both sides to the largest extent possible. After all, we were too prosperous. Britain and France positioned themselves to enter the war on the side of the South. Britain sent 11,000 troops to Canada. France installed Archduke Maximilian as emperor of all Mexico. French troops were then poised on the Texas border. America was virtually surrounded.
Lincoln responded with a naval blockade and a military alliance with Russia, which may have changed the fate of America and the world. How did this come about? Lincoln dispatched a letter to Russian Czar Nicholas (a man despised by the international bankers as he too would not give in to a debt-based central banking system...a little problem they would remedy a few years hence) who, knowing the letter to be from Lincoln, reportedly held it, unopened, in his hand and simply stated “The answer is yes to whatever he requests.” Russian ships made their way to New York and San Francisco harbors. The action gave the French and British great pause and perhaps averted tremendous additional bloodshed. In referring to the international bankers, Lincoln stated “The enemy behind us is more dangerous to the country than the enemy before us.” If you truly believe, as the history books claim, that the war was all about slavery, think again. Although Lincoln was on record as being opposed to slavery, it was not his primary concern.
On August 22, 1862, in a letter to Horace Greeley, Lincoln penned “My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union. I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause.”
Now, imagine if a government simply created its own money out of nothing, and it was backed by nothing more than the full faith and credit of the government and people of the nation in question? Well, it has been done. Colonial Scrip was interest-free (no profit for international bankers equals great prosperity for the average person). Again, during the Civil War, President Lincoln issued “greenbacks” based upon this precise premise and they proved enormously popular, serving also, to finance the Civil War. Although Lincoln did have to turn to the international bankers for some assistance in the end, it was apparent that he intended after winning reelection, upon conclusion of the Civil War, that he would eliminate this debt and not do business with the international money changers. It is precisely for his efforts in this area that many say Lincoln was assassinated. It is said that John Wilkes Booth was nothing less than a paid mercenary/murderer for the international bankers who could not bear to see this huge nation expand and prosper without their absolute control over the money of the growing nation.
Otto Von Bismarck, the famous German Chancellor (1815-1898) remarked, “The death of Lincoln was a disaster for Christendom. There was no man in the United States great enough to wear his boots...I fear that foreign bankers with their craftiness and tortuous tricks will entirely control the exuberant riches of America and use it to systematically corrupt modern civilization. They will not hesitate to plunge the whole of Christendom into war and chaos in order that the earth shall become their inheritance.”
As I conclude, I put it to you that the Federal Reserve is more powerful than the federal government. Heed Proverbs 22:7, which states “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” The Fed controls availability of all money, credit, the amount of your car payment, the amount of your house payment, whether or not you have a job (did your company get that loan to continue or expand its operations...or not?), and is, of course, the largest single creditor to the United States government. (From approximately 1980 to 1995 the United States of America’s “debt” to the Fed, a private institution, grew from roughly 1 Trillion to 5 Trillion dollars...what was that you say...”...the borrower is servant to the lender.” Indeed.) They accomplish these mighty tasks by inflating and contracting the money supply while creating money out of thin air. Every period of depression or recession in this country is not the so-called “business cycle” but rather is nothing more than the Fed expanding or contracting the amount of money in circulation. There is not a single time in the history of America where “bad times” were not associated with the contraction of the money supply.
It is important to understand that money never truly disappears, it merely changes hands. Joseph Kennedy was said to have had a couple million dollars around 1929. By 1934, apparently he had amassed some 200 million dollars. Money is never truly lost (for example, in the stock market); it only ends up in someone else’s pockets. (Or your house, your farm, your property, your car, etc...end up in the hands of the few.) Therefore, understand, that those “in the know” stand to reap the greatest profits not in times of prosperity, but in times of despair, because the most dramatic swings occur at such moments and therefore offer the greatest opportunities for profit. Needless to say, the average American is not “in the know.”
Some folks say, and I tend to agree, the worst of times are yet ahead. After all, the goal of the international banker is not merely profit, but complete control. Think about it. If you had all the money you could ever want...if you were untouchable by the law...there would be only one thing left: Power over others...and in the case of the international banker, the whole of the world will do nicely, thank you very much.
Sir Josiah Stamp, who was president of The Bank of England in the late 1920s, and the second richest man in the world, remarked “Banking was conceived in iniquity, and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of the pen, they will create enough deposits, to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers, and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.”
A remark attributed to the Rothschild Brothers of England states that “Those few who can understand the system (check book money and credit) will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on it favors, that there will be little opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear it burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.”
Do you want to “understand the system,” the one poised to destroy America and the whole of the world? President Garfield, who strongly opposed the international money changers noted “Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce.” Not surprisingly, shortly after taking office, this brave and intelligent man was shot and died. Starting to see a pattern here? Do you think these people (international bankers) are absolutely merciless and arrogant? Do you?
Thomas Jefferson said “Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.” Will we ever learn? Next week, we shall backtrack a little and discuss “Old Hickory,” namely President Andrew Jackson, perhaps the greatest enemy of the international banker ever to walk the earth, and others, and begin to further probe the enormous corruption and danger facing our nation and world today.
"History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and it's issuance."

|The Grand Deception: The Theft of America and the World, Part I
By Christopher Mark
The purpose of this week’s article is to provide you with an introduction to the earthly instruments of destruction which pervade earth. These institutions mean to accomplish nothing less than to enslave the entire population of the planet. Welcome to the world of the international banker.
In fact, your country and your world is owned by international bankers. It is no longer relevant, in this author’s opinion, to focus on names, such as Rockefellers and Rothschilds, for the plutocratic institutions that rule the our planet have been
